    Country music maverick Chase Rice has become one of country music’s most exciting figures since arriving in Nashville, building a loyal fan base across the country through his energetic live shows and gaining the attention of music critics and industry professionals alike with his edgy, eclectic sound. The Tar Heel State native has inked a new label deal with Broken Bow Records and is putting the finishing touches on his sophomore album, Lambs & Lions, in stores November 17. Rice’s debut album Ignite the Nightdebuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums and No. 3 on the all-genre chart, and produced a pair of Top 5 hits, the Platinum-certified "Ready Set Roll" and “Gonna Wanna Tonight.” After supporting Kenny Chesney’s The Big Revival Tour 2015, Rice consistently sold out 2,500-3,000 seat venues on his JD and Jesus Tour and Everybody We Know Does Tour, and will launch his 2017 Lambs & Lions Tour this fall.

    Right. Because nobody in Boston listens to country. Those country stations broadcasting here are just doing it for the hell of it.

    To each their own, but I don't see the appeal.

    Country has become today's soft Top 40 - especially with women.

    Most of Matty's listeners go to country after his show wraps.

    Has anybody made a post yet about how they don't recognize the names and today's music is crap?

    I remember hearing about when my mother, my grandmother, and my great grandmother used to say the same thing to their kids

    I personally don't associate country music with either hockey or Boston.

    But I guess if it makes some people happy, go for it?

    Old Town Road” is coming to the Stanley Cup Final.

    Lil Nas X will perform the top song in the world Monday in Boston as part of the pregame festivities before the series between the Bruins and St. Louis Blues gets underway. The NHL announced Friday Lil Nas X and country singer Chase Rice as the artists who will play at Boston’s City Hall Plaza before Game 1.

    “The place is going to go berserk, I’m pretty sure,” NHL chief content officer and executive vice president Steve Mayer said.

    “Everybody knows the song. The song is played in all our arenas, and the reaction to the song has been just incredible.”

    “Old Town Road” has spent seven weeks as the top song on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Mayer said the artist’s representatives reached out several months ago to promote the song for in-arena use, which led to the league getting him for the final.
    Rice, whose song “Eyes On You” peaked at No. 3 on the country music chart, will open the musical act part of the show around 6 p.m. The game starts at 8 p.m.

    A longtime hockey fan, Rice performed during player introductions at the NHL All-Star Skills Competition in Tampa last year. Mayer said Lil Nas X’s manager is a 25-year New York Rangers season ticket holder and that the rapper will wear a Bruins jersey on stage and attend the game.

    “Just to have him in the building for a Stanley Cup Final, I think he’ll fall in love,” Mayer said. “If you’re going to see your first hockey game, that’s a pretty good game to go to.”

    When the series shifts to St. Louis for Game 3 on June 1, Mayer said, the NHL is planning an outdoor sing-along of Laura Branigan’s “Gloria,” which has become the Blues’ victory song. St. Louis native and former contestant on “The Voice” Kennedy Holmes will lead it at 5:49 p.m. — a time specially picked because it’s the Blues’ first trip to the Stanley Cup Final in 49 years.
    Grammy Award-winning R&B artist Gary Clark Jr. is set to be among the performers in St. Louis, with other NHL announcements to come. Mayer said five blocks of Market Street between the arena at the Gateway Arch will be closed and local officials estimate a crowd of at least 20,000 before the first Cup Final game in the city since 1970.
